I got the size I always get, size large, not realizing there is actually a size x-large. It is rare to see printed diapers in size x-large and I should have paid more attention because although the size large does fit, the overlap of the side panels is not as much as my usual brand of Comfidry24/7 size large. I really wish I had compared the two brands and their sizes. The x-large may have been too big but as we all know, the more overlap of the side panels, the better, especially when wearing at night due to the tossing and turning we all tend to do in our sleep.
The crinkling noise is not as loud as I thought it would be when I was handling the diaper. The noise level is actually quieter than that of Comfidry24/7.
Now on to what I call the best feature and that is the print. Although I have not had the funds to try all the print diapers now available on the market, I do try my best to keep up with all the new prints coming out each year. There are prints that are good and prints that are bad. The bad prints are usually so busy that it can cause some people to get a headache. Safari is different in that the animals are not only large enough to clearly see but the white space between each animal is enough that you can look at this print and not get a headache. Again, I have not seen most designs in person, only on my computer screen and Safari is my choice for best all over diaper print.
If you plan to purchase this diaper, make sure to check the sizing and if you are close to the high end of the sizing, go to the next size up so you can make sure you are getting enough overlap along the sides.
Great job Rearz!
